The 'cottagecore' aesthetic is a type of style that has quickly become a favourite of mine over the past couple of years. It concentrates on soft fabrics, delicate prints and comfortable styles. I know narrowing down the best dresses on the market can be hard to do, so I've selected some of my favourite pieces that are under £100.
The gingham print is a staple in cottagecore and even if you're not into the aesthetic yourself, I think it's a favourite of many especially in the Summer time. This River Island Green Gingham Maxi Dress is probably one of my favourite budget finds as the tie waist and shoulders really add a cute feel to the dress.
If gingham isn't your thing, then floral prints may be. There's so many gorgeous pieces at the moment it was hard to narrow it down to my favourites. This Oasis Floral Bodice Pleated Dress is absolutely beautiful and I can totally see myself wearing it on a Summer's day. This Miss Selfridge Shirred Ditsy Dress is so pretty as I love this sage green shade for the Spring months.
As soon as I spotted this Hollister Floral Midi Dress I knew that I had to share it because I think if you're into the cottagecore aesthetic, you'll absolutely love this. If you're looking for a something similar but in a mini style, then I stumbled across this River Island Broderie one which I think would love great.
